AOC Admits Concentration Camp Cages Were Built and Operated By Obama

Elder Patriot – CNN’s Jake Tapper actually asked radical leftist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a tough question and the answer he got shot a major gash in the lies being spewed by the Democratic Party and enhanced through the echo chamber of the Maxist media:

Tapper: “You retweeted a story from Esquire magazine discussing all this, talking about the academic definition [of “concentration camp”] versus the definition that most people think of, the colloquial definition that doesn’t mean the concentration camp or just a concentration of individuals, but a Nazi death camp. 

“But one of the points that was made in that very story was that, using that definition, there were also concentration camps under Obama and under Bill Clinton. That is in the story that you retweeted. 

“So, did you call them concentration camps at the time, when Obama was president?”

AOC: “Well, at the time I was working in a restaurant. But I absolutely was outspoken against Obama’s immigration policies and the detention of families then. 

“I think it’s a remarkably consistent position, and I’m not here to defend wrong actions just because they happened under a Democratic administration. 

“I’m here to speak truth to power, and if it’s wrong, it’s wrong. And I frankly don’t care what president does it.”

Wow!  That certainly contradicts the Democrats’ claims that Donald Trump is responsible for separating families and putting children in cages in an inhumane manner.

Democrats’ charges against President Trump were rejected by Barack Obama’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director, Thomas Homan.

While speaking at a conference hosted by the Center for Immigration Studies, Homan explained that he witnessed the construction of the cages in 2015 while working under the direction of Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson:

“I’ve been to that facility, where they talk about cages. That facility was built under President Obama under (Homeland Security) Secretary Jeh Johnson. I was there because I was there when it was built.”

[…]

The kids are being housed  in the same facility built under the Obama administration. If you want to call them cages, call them cages. 

But if the left wants to call them cages and the Democrats want to call them cages then they have to accept the fact that they were built and funded in FY 2015 [while Obama was president].”

When pressed on the use of cages Homan explained that it’s for the safety of the children:

“It’s chain link dividers that keep children separate from unrelated adults. It’s about protecting children.” 

Homan added that those accommodations are only temporary until they are moved elsewhere by the Department of Health and Human Services.
